Mike Mulcahy having a blast on the Square Inch Wal...


Square Inch Wall is the first real climbing wall at Echo, so named because just about every square inch of the wall is climbable. The majority of the moderate climbs are located here – many quite good. Like the rest of Echo, Square Inch wall is often wet late into the spring, and after a good rain. The routes are all 50 to 60 feet in length. As of the summer of 2006, a large tree at the top of the wall with slings around the base fell over and is perched precariously above a number of the routes to the left of the first wooden ladder.

Getting There 

Follow the approach trail past the jumble of boulders and trees to a point where it turns uphill. Scramble to the base of the wall, and follow it around to the right. The first short wall is the bouldering wall. The next section of 50-60 foot high cliff is the Square Inch Wall. There are a couple of wooden ladders set perpendicular to the wall to help you scramble along the base.
